My Story

Thank you for checking in on our big 10 year-old Isaiah Jeffery!  His challenges are daily as he battles the brain damage he sustained before he was born.  High muscle tone (tightness) and his inability to walk or talk make each day a unique one.  But Isaiah's smile, persistence and great sense of humor keeps us all moving forward.  In addition to his Cerebral Palsy, Isaiah was diagnosed with a heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Visit here to watch Isaiah's progress.
